AARES in South Sound Business Magazine
Local writer, Josh Stearns, reached out to All American Restoration Services to discuss creative methods for developing a positive workplace culture. We were honored to be included with so many talented local business leaders to contribute to this important topic. Josh shared about two efforts that we have been involved with to help build collaboration and community around the South Sound, Socktember and South Sound Connection (SSC) LIVE.
We did something good, and it made an impact, a very positive impact,” Isaacson said. More broadly, he noted Pierce County’s community efforts to unite during hard times and noted hashtags like #supportlocal and #lovelocal to support local businesses and keep people working. Isaacson tries to promote that through his The DYOJO podcast at thedyojo.com. Socktember represented the idea that, “It only takes a small spark to get a fire going,” Isaacson said.
Socktember 2020 was an awesome effort raising over 5,500 pairs of socks with help from our friends and peers in a team "competition" which included The Contents Specialists, Merit Construction, 3 Kings Environmental, and Home with Kelsey Isaacson.
Similarly, Isaacson has a podcast called South Sound Connection to highlight local entrepreneurs, businesses, and community efforts, and serves as a sounding board for other positive efforts in the community that people can rally around. “We want Tacoma to thrive; if Tacoma does well, I think all of our businesses will do well, collectively, and as we continue to support local companies,” he said.
Josh Dunn, president of Premier Media Group (PMG), which publishes South Sound Business Magazine, was our guest for South Sound Connection 018 on Tuesday, May 4, 2021. You can catch SSC LIVE every Tuesday at 9am PST on YouTube.
